It’s always great to support local talent and designers. On Wednesday April 13th, a group of our staff were happy to attend this year’s annual Sececa College Fashion Show !
Seneca’s 2011 Redefining Design was held at the Japanese Canadian Cultural Centre. The show featured 45 up and coming fashion design students. As well as a cocktail hour before, which gave viewers a chance to see the students garments outside the auditorium.
The other exhibits featured were from the Fashion Visual Merchandising Arts program. Where students showcased a variety of elaborate displays. It also featured makeup artistry of Cosmetic Techniques and Management students, creations by Floral Design students.
“Seneca students come from all over the world and I am pleased to see their diverse talents and inspiration showcased in the end of year show,” said Seneca College President David Agnew. “Redefining Design is a celebration of the success of our students and an opportunity for industry leaders and notable alumni to connect with these up-and-coming designers.”
Check out the images below for some of the latest fashion trends from Seneca’s students;
Donna, Denise, Laura, Rishma and Lilla
Opening design by Amy Liu, the pieces looked liked outer skeleton ribs and bodily organs wrapped like blood vessels. Blue, red, black and white were the featured colors.
Very unique, textures with dangling bubbles and exaggerated balloon shape skirts by Michelle Chen.
Silun Chens designs featured florescent lights immerging from all white garments in the darkened auditorium. Models wore black spotted tights that gave way for the contrasting garments.
Seneca winner was Katie Hodgson for her tubular knits, tight pleats and crafting her own Gaga-esque heel-less platforms.
A group favourite. Textured tiny pleats reminiscent of a tree trunk and tubular knits attached to create this dynamic 3D design.
Alexandria Layton used lots of fur and feathers in her collection, something that’s been popular this seasons. She created some beautiful wearable looks with a backwoods, igloo feel.
Neckline full of gems and sparkle. This Indian inspired collection was full of glitz with crystal embellishments.
More jewels and glamorous layered dresses by Mary Mariades.
Second place winner from the Floral design program. I love how she used metallic lilac aluminum wire for her assemblyand pops of crystal.
Another beautiful design by Seneca Floral design student by Shannin Morgan.
Displays by the Fashion Merchandising students. Big and Colourful !
Saw lots of use of cut out paper shapes creating flowers , butterflies and birds.
Rishma’s having fun too !
